Christians can bring God’s healing to people

When you see someone who is ill, downcast, or suffering from a broken relationship, you have encountered a Kingdom-of-God restoration opportunity! God can restore, bringing health where there is illness, joy where there is sadness, and reconciliation where there is brokenness. He has power over not just the physical body, but power to change the human heart.

We can use the eyes God gave us to recognize the works of the devil in the lives of others, and our hands to represent God’s hands as He does His healing work. Notice also, that the end result is bringing glory to God!

But the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath; and he said to the crowd, “There are six days on which men ought to work; therefore come and be healed on them, and not on the Sabbath day.” The Lord then answered him and said, “Hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or donkey from the stall, and lead it away to water it? So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound—think of it—for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?” And when He said these things, all His adversaries were put to shame; and all the multitude rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by Him. Luke 13:10-17


Identify one relationship where you’ve allowed your spiritual eyes to become lazy by not looking for opportunities to bring God’s healing and restoration to someone’s life. Ask God to forgive you, and help you see every opportunity to be a blessing.
